GMImage.Scale

Resize image by using simple ratio algorithm.

Component Version macOS Windows Server FileMaker Cloud FileMaker iOS SDK
GraphicsMagick 2.0 Yes Yes Yes Yes Yes

MBS( "GMImage.Scale"; ImageRef; Geometry )

Parameters

Parameter Description Example value
ImageRef The image reference number. 1
Geometry The rectangle. Geometry is specified as a width and height "100x200". With an optional offset "100x200+10+20". For percent values, add a percent on the end, for % values add a %: "100x200%!" "300x200"

Result

Returns "OK" on success.

Description

Resize image by using simple ratio algorithm.

GraphicsMagick has added a number of qualifiers to the standard geometry string for use when resizing images. The form of an extended geometry string is "<width>x<height>{+-}<xoffset>{+-}<yoffset>{%}{!}{<}{>}". Extended geometry strings should only be used when resizing an image. Using an extended geometry string for other applications may cause the API call to fail. The available qualifiers are shown in the following table:

QualifierDescription
%Interpret width and height as a percentage of the current size.
!Resize to width and height exactly, loosing original aspect ratio.
<Resize only if the image is smaller than the geometry specification.
>Resize only if the image is greater than the geometry specification.

Examples

Scales the image to 50% with calculating ourself

Let ( [
$Image = MBS("GMImage.NewFromContainer"; GraphicsMagick::image);
$Width = MBS("GMImage.GetWidth";$Image);
$Height = MBS("GMImage.GetHeight";$Image);
$Width = $Width/2;
$Height = $Height/2;
$ScaleResult = MBS("GMImage.Scale";$Image; $Width & "x" & $Height);
$Result = MBS("GMImage.WriteToPNGContainer"; $Image);
$Error = MBS("GMImage.Destroy";$Image)
];
$Result)

Scales the image to 50% easily

Let ( [
$Image = MBS("GMImage.NewFromContainer"; GraphicsMagick::image);
$ScaleResult = MBS("GMImage.Scale";$Image; "50%");
$Result = MBS("GMImage.WriteToPNGContainer"; $Image);
$Error = MBS("GMImage.Destroy";$Image)
];
$Result)

Scales the image down to 640 pixel width, if it is bigger

Let ( [
$Image = MBS("GMImage.NewFromContainer"; GraphicsMagick::image);
$ScaleResult = MBS("GMImage.Scale";$Image; "640>");
$Result = MBS("GMImage.WriteToPNGContainer"; $Image);
$Error = MBS("GMImage.Destroy";$Image)
];
$Result)

Scale as script:

Set Variable [$Image; Value:MBS("GMImage.NewFromContainer"; Image Scaling::InputImage)]
Set Variable [$r; Value:MBS("GMImage.Scale"; $Image; "800x600")]
Set Field [Image Scaling::Result; MBS("GMImage.WriteToPNGContainer"; $Image)]
Set Variable [$r; Value: MBS("GMImage.Destroy"; $Image)]
